Wichita Man Wins $25,000 Prize at Favorite Store

Robert J. Bos, Jr., claims to be something of a "fixture" at his favorite QuikTrip in Wichita. He says he's there every day, drinking coffee and playing lottery games.

"When I walk into the store they all say, 'Bob's here!'" he said with a laugh. "I'm there so much I've even gotten to be friends with the Lottery District Manager who calls on the store."

Bos will have some great news to share with the Lottery representative next time he sees him.  Namely, that he won $25,000 playing the $5 instant scratch game 10x the Money.

"I'm beside myself with excitement!" Bos told Lottery officials when he claimed his winning ticket. "I don't think it's really sunk in yet."

Bos is retired from the military and from the Veterans Administration. His wife Wendy works at the Robert J. Dole VA Medical Center.  Bos plans to spend part of his prize money restoring a 1954 Ford Crestline car he acquired five months ago.  As classic cars can sometimes be, Bos said this one is turning out to be "a money pit."  The Lottery is pleased to make that pit a little bit shallower.

The store where Bos purchased his winning ticket - his favorite store even more than before - is QuikTrip 329, located at 5602 E. Harry St. in Wichita.
